Service, food, atmosphere is always delightful. Whether you are inside or out. Some Servers are not vaccinated or masked, so ask for a server who has been vaccinated!! Servers who are not vaxxed should be wearing a mask to protect customers and other co-workers.

It was a beautiful sunny day and we were looking for a new restaurant with a patio. The patio was large and the food was delicious! We ordered the Bolognese, Caprese Sandwich and Chopped Salad. The balsamic dressing was outstanding. Our waitress Jo was very...friendly and did a great job. We can’t wait to come back again!!More

I have been coming here for over a decade and Zin never fails to impress me. The ambiance is lovely, the patio in summer is the best spot in town, and the food is always fabulous. The Sonoma goat cheese salad is a fave and...their grouper is to die for. And I always save room for the chocolate lasagna- I’m sitting on Zin’s patio rn waiting for it. All the servers here are good, but Jo is my fave. She’s always friendly, efficient, & personable. She knows us by name & remembers what our favorites are! Zin is my go to for both lunch and dinner- I can’t recommend it enough!!!More

This is the 1st time we’ve been to the town of Delafield, and were looking for a restaurant for lunch today. So glad we tried Zin, and already plan to make a beeline here on our next trip to Delafield. Food, ambience, and service were...excellent. If a Monday lunch is this good we can only imagine how dinner is. We started with a small plate of Arancini that were so amazing we got a second order of them. Also had the Avocado Bacon Chopped Salad, the Vegetable Risotto with crunchy fresh vegetables and shaved parmesan, and the Napa Burger which came with golden thick french fries. Every bite, every dish was delicious. Our waitress, Jo, was great, and also rightly steered us toward the best and most authentic Key Lime Pie we’ve had in ages.More

My husband and I spent a night at the Delafield Hotel when we had to have some work done on our house. It was an unexpected relaxing wonderful getaway on a Mon night. Instead of trying the food at the hotel restaurant I.d., we thought...that it would be better to order from a restaurant that would be a ‘sure bet’ for a wonderful meal as compared to a hotel restaurant that we didn’t know much about. Boy were we mistaken!! Our meal from Zin was such a disappointment and it almost ruined our nice getaway. (We should have ordered from the hotel restaurant I.d.) I ordered the Chopped Avocado Salad and it was far from the familiar fresh quality I would expect from Zin. The lettuce was warm and limp and not fresh, the bacon was definitely not fresh and the worst part was the dressing - there was absolutely no flavor in a thick unappealing greenish concoction. The description on their menu called it a red wine vinaigrette but there was no red wine vinegar in the “dressing”. There was very little cheese, tomato and cucumber as well. Just a lot of poor quality lettuce. I order salads out all the time and this by far was the worst I’ve ever had. I couldn’t even eat it. My husband had the Chicken Marsala and the chicken was extremely dry. He was disappointed too. The only thing we enjoyed was the calamari - which was excellent. I called to let Zin personnel know about the meal and they were nice enough to remove the salad from the bill but it didn’t help to keep telling me about how popular the salad is. If it was made properly I’m sure it would have been outstanding. I eat a lot of chopped, wedge, etc. salads so I know the popularity of them. I’m not sure if they had a substitute cook in on a Mon night or what but it certainly wasn’t what we expected for a much anticipated meal ☹️More

Great food and nice wait staff. I have tried the chicken piccata and the italian sausage with tomato cream sauce and both had great sauces.
